Do you have the full XP CD?

Is ther anything on the drive you wish to keep?

I am using my backup copy with sp2 slipstreamed, loaded it, running good, then messed it up. I have already reformatted. it is on my second box.

Did you solve this?

If not boot with the xp cd and use the Recovery Console then FIXMBR

Or just reformat or partition from there.

Use KillDisk this will clear all your drive. then reload windows. You will lose all so do not use if you only have restore disc and drivers.
